Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth has provided us with a NECA NES Style Batman 7″ Scale Figure and we have a full gallery for your enjoyment. The figure is part of NECA’s growing Video Game Series of figures. This is also the first original sculpt in the series, with the prior releases all being repaints of existing figures. I originally shot this and had the review ready prior to the announcement of the Movie Accurate 7″ Scale NECA Batman being released. So I went back and re-edited the review, so that delayed posting a bit. After the jump, find over 65 photos of the figure.

The Michael Keaton Batman in movie accurate colors will be included with a Batman 25th Anniversary Diamond Luxe Blu-Ray Set.
